NOTE: We are unable to make an appointment for you if you already have an attorney. We can only provide appointment support with the self help forms for the above 5 services. However, don’t hesitate to contact us to request other resources in the area.

What To Expect

Our student staff is trained to provide legal assistance with filling out the required paperwork in the areas listed above.  Our services focus on the completion of pro se paperwork. If you need assistance with something outside of the five services listed above, we would be happy to refer to you to other resources in the area.

We have volunteer attorneys on staff each Saturday who can answer questions about forms you plan to file, answer questions about the legal process, and provide advice on how to obtain the legal result you seek.

Click on the issue above for a list of documents to bring to your appointment. They will allow us to help you as best we can.

We cannot and will not serve as legal counsel or represent anyone in court.
